General Trade Perception
A great late addition hop
I've just been boiling up 1oz Summit (1.5 litre water) as an experiment at the end of a brew day.
I've heard some reviews of the variety as having a garlic/onion slant to it....SHIT YES !!
Be a little careful with this one, in my humble opinion.
In this very vigorous boil, over 15 mins, my whole house smelled like I was making a lasagne, or other garlicy recipe.
It does have a grapefruit/mandarin quality...but during this intensive test that was eclipsed by the garlicy tones.
The hops were super fresh form Yakima Valley Hops...not doubt about the quality IMHO.
Just thought I'd share...
